Carol graduated with the class of 68 at Hortonville High School. Following high school she was employed by K-Mart for over 22 years in the lawn and garden department.

She is further survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and a very special cousin Julie Lee.
She was preceded in death by her parents James and Margaret Jenkel; a brother, Daniel Jenkel; in-laws George Lutzewitz Sr., Marie Lutzewitz, and Ron Lutzewitz.
